If my continued sojourn out of Nigeria has taught me anything, it is the value of primary education.
Here, thinking patterns we’re expected to draw on in solving tasks and answering questions are from teaching styles and learning process ingrained in us from kindergarten.
I mean, the focus is not so much on the task or knowledge itself, but how you do it, how you approach it, the right learning mind, a partnership mentality and so on.
There is this Ludo game I play. When I began to play it, I skipped the easy level and set the difficulty at ‘normal’.
I won a lot but I noticed that once in a while, when the computer should have moved its dices in a particular way that would have allowed it to win, it won’t. I always laugh and claimed it was dumb.
After a while, I got bored with winning so I moved up another level of difficulty, hard. At the beginning, it was as advertised, hard. I had cleared my previous winnings so it looked like we were at par. I wasn’t winning so much.
